In the Autumn of 1982, a group of friends gathered to form The Phoenix Theatre Company. Most of the early members, but not all, were also members of Church Road Parent Teachers' Association, who, as one of their many activities had performed Pantomimes in the School Hall to swell the PTA funds! As there were interested parties who wished to continue as a dramatic entity, it was decided to form an independent society. Almost inevitably the name for the new society was The Phoenix Theatre Company - a new society arising from the ashes of the old. The Hall is located at the intersection of Bridgeman Street and Higher Swan Lane, with St. Philips Avenue at the rear.
